We are

As the voice of Ontario’s Registered Practical Nurses, WeRPN showcases the critical role that RPNs play in Ontario’s health care system. We establish strong relationships with government and key decision makers to make sure the perspectives and concerns of RPNs on key professional practice and health policy issues are heard.

WeRPN is a recognized leader in professional practice. We advocate on behalf of RPNs through our membership on a wide range of Boards, Committees and Groups. Some of these groups include:

  • Joint Provincial Nursing Committee
  • Nurses Health Program Board of Directors
  • Numerous Provincial Advisory Committees for College PN Programs
